Item description for Shelley Gave Jane A Guitar by Richard Meier...
"Basking in the twilight of Late Romanticism, Meier . . . finds the rays seductive but damaging . . . Meier's sophisticated debut promises further developments."-Publishers Weekly on Terrain Vague
Domesticity, nature, and heartbreak inhabit this seriously playful second collection. Through precise description and inventive vocabulary, Meier's poems are relentless in their efforts to sincerely address contemporary uncertainty and love. A great book for readers looking to rediscover Romantic poetry: "Embrace was a word first used of forts, / until the one body fell down inside the other body, and was lost."
